Deregulation and the growing competition of independent power producers; increased operating, maintenance and overhead costs; reduced operating staffs; and shorter plant outages have placed enormous demands on utility executives to find ways and means of improving cost performance without compromising quality or safety. Plants have reduced operating staffs, re-engineered plant process controls and instituted continuous quality programs to decrease operating costs and enhance performance.
